Churches have Olympic-size dreams for UK


LONDON — As the United Kingdom welcomes thousands of athletes and guests, Churches of Christ are preparing to host their second-annual youth convention — less than 24 hours after the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympics.

“Joy Unspeakable” is the theme of the London Christian Youth Convention at Dugdale Centre Enfield in London.

The convention is “an explosive celebration of song, praise, drama, debate and lecture,” said Sarah Dod, one of the organizers. For more information, see the convention’s website, londoncyc.com.

A week later, a mission team from the Tuscumbia Church of Christ in Alabama will focus on

“A Prize More Precious than Gold.” That’s the title of a Sunday sermon scheduled for Aug. 5 at the New Cross Church of Christ in London.

In the days that follow, the team and their British counterparts also will host a VBS for the children of London with the theme “Champions for Christ.”

“We invite all Christians from America who may be in London during the Olympics to worship with us and to attend our VBS,” Abrams said.

For fun, he added a decidedly un-British “Y’all come!”
